Tomato and Fish Stew


    Tomato and Fish Stew

    Tilapia and catfish can also be used as the main protein source. Serve with some crusty bread.


    1 Tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 medium carrots, sliced
    1 medium zucchini, chopped
    3/4 cup (180 mL) dry white wine
    2 stalks celery, sliced
    1 - 28 oz (796 mL) can diced tomatoes
    1 cup (250 mL) water
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) dried oregano
    1 tsp (5 mL) cumin
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) red pepper flakes
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) coriander
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 1/2 lb (750 g) haddock, rinsed and cut into 1 in (2.5 cm) chunks
    Fresh cilantro

    Heat oil in large pot over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 6 minutes, or until soft, stirring frequently. Toss garlic, carrots, and zucchini into pot and saute for another 6 minutes, stirring frequently.

    Pour in wine, raise heat to medium-high and simmer until most of wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Stir in celery, tomatoes, water, spices, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered for 10 minutes.

    Stir in fish and continue to simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until fish pieces start to look opaque. Ladle into serving bowls and garnish with cilantro.

    Serves 4.

    Crab and Apple Stuffed Endive Boats

    Rich, tasty crab, sweet apple, licorice-scented tarragon, and a touch of lemon make these stuffed endives a classy crowd pleaser. The filling is easily prepared in advance and can be chilled until ready to serve, but this dish also comes together quickly enough to be done right before stuffing into leaves. Keeping your boats upright If you want the endive boats to sit neatly on the dish or platter without tipping, you can make a small slice at the bottom of each leaf before filling to give it a flat surface to rest on. Just make sure not to penetrate too deeply into the wall of the leaf.
